Writer tries to stop sale of original Schindler's List





An Argentine writer is trying to stop a memorabilia dealer from trying to sell what he says is one of few remaining copies of the document at the heart of the film Schindler's List.

The document – a roster of 801 Jewish workers whom the German businessman Oskar Schindler employed to spare them from Nazi concentration camps during the Second World War – is being offered for $2.2 million.

Rosenberg, Emilie Schindler's biographer, says she inherited the widow's interest in the list. The document went through several revisions and eventually saved more than 1,000 Jews. A handful of other surviving copies are held in museums and archives.

The Buenos Aires-based Rosenberg wants proof that the copy Mr Zimet is offering is genuine – and wants to block the sale if it is.
